Any software recommendations for babies/early toddlers? Keyboards? Mice?

I've been looking around the Internet for some good software for babies/early toddlers, but all I seem to find are junk referral reviews or stuff that won't work on WindowsXP.

Anyone have any recommendations for software that babies/early toddlers love that's for WindowsXP?

How about keyboards or mice?

There isn't a lot out there. I bought some software for my daughter when she was very little and most of the games involve the mice, which was hard for her to use.

I found one good program called "Sesame Street Baby" that has a lot of good keyboard games. I think it was in the bargain bin someplace.

Now that she's four she loves the computer and plays like a pro.

My daughter is 3 and has been playing games on the websites (pbskids.org and noggin/nick jr) for about 5 months now. She figured out how the mouse worked and can navigate randomly through the sites looking for games to play. she uses just the normal 2 button scroll mouse and never has to use the keyboard.

Just don't let her click on your bookmarks, DaveNinja.

I bought a little tikes kidboard

http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/AS...271441-9514351

about 5 years ago and neither of my kids have been able to hurt it at all. it seems they are no longer made

Now it looks like they have a much more expensive version

Maybe you can find one like I have on ebay/half.com or some other place.

Or a variety of ones here

but I have tried any of them
